The day you say “I do” deserves to feel as perfect as the love you share, and nothing says perfect like celebrating love with hand-crafted wine, a one-of-a-kind venue, and great company. As a child, did you fantasize about your wedding taking place under the sun on a white sandy beach? Maybe you dreamt of being surrounded by willow trees covered in twinkle lights? Maybe you fantasized strolling through lush green vineyards as a slight breeze blew through your hair? Well, at Rio Vista, you don’t have to choose; you can have it all!
On your wedding day, there is so much to think about! However, we will gladly help ease your mind. After all, we have done this a time or two. While you focus on your important day, let us take care of the crew, views and mood! We invite you to get ready in our on-site bridal suite where you can make yourself at home and stay the evening. Rio Vista houses an array of award-winning wines and favorite beer varietals which ensures a great time for your guests. We pride ourselves in offering you an extremely versatile environment where you have the space to create the atmosphere you have always wanted.
Here’s an example of what your dream day could look like:
Get Ready in the Bridal Suite
Grab your glass of River View Red and settle into our on-site bridal suite, created with you and your best gals in mind. Keep hidden from prying eyes without having to venture too far from all the action.
First Look in the Vineyard
Our plentiful rows of estate vines provide the perfect backdrop for those oh-so-special first look photos. You know, the ones where your groom has tears in his eyes because you’re a total babe? The vines are lush and green late spring through September, turning gorgeous fall hues October through November.
Intimate Riverside Ceremony
Gather around the arbor along the river’s edge with your loved ones as you promise forever to your favorite person in the world. Imagine a string quartet in the background and the soft sounds of tweeting birds and excited guests.
Beach Portraits at Sunset
If you have yet to experience the natural sandy beach at Rio Vista Wines, you’re in for a treat! Kick off those bedazzled heels and sink your newly married toes into the warm, smooth sand. There’s nothing quite like those first few smooches once you say, “I do!” and our beach is the perfect place to do so. And since Rio Vista is the only winery in the valley located right on the water, you can sneak back to the beach later with your sweetie, wine glasses (and each other) in hand.
Reception Under the Willows
Our massive, lush green lawn is surrounded by towering willows — the perfect canvas for twinkle lights. This area comes complete with a view of the river and vineyard, along with plenty of flat space for tables and a dance floor. You bring the tunes and cake, and we’ll keep the wine flowing! Loony Red and Sunset on the River are always crowd pleasers.
